The Alfred Wegener Institute’s research centre in Potsdam: Here the focus lies on geoscientific studies in periglacial areas at the edge of ice sheets and in permafrost regions, as well as on modelling and experimental investigations on atmospheric processes in the Polar Regions. The Potsdam AWI scientists undertake expeditions to Antarctica and the Arctic. They increasingly devote themselves to Arctic research – in particular to the permafrost areas of Siberia and the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard – because these regions hold the keys to the understanding of the climate events in Europe.

In the MISO project, the AWI team is leading the development of greenhouse gas flux measurement chambers and leading the proof of concept for deployment in wetland and Arctic ecosystems.
